(applause) >> stephen: no surprise. no surprise, my superpac and the transformer series have a lot in common. i can also rake in millions of dollars for no apparent reason. so -- (cheers and applause) >> stephen: folks, hogging the space a little bit there. so folks if you have not done so already go over to colbert and sign up. so far over 94,000 of you have become members. and trust me, and one person clap -- and trust me, no, no, it's too late. and trust me, i will only use your e-mail addresses for good. you'll be buried under av an avalanche of spam not seen since the 1968 explosion of the hormel factory.

to convince them to let me form colbert superpac. the key issue, folks, would talking about my pac on the air constitute an in-kind donation from viacom forcing viacom to report sensitive financial secrets. for instance, that vh1 annual operating budget is $14. (laughter) >> stephen: those bon jovi videos aren't going to pay for themselves. now folks, we've all waited two months for this decision. let's get straight to today's explosive committee room action. jim? >> the first item is an a advisory opinion request submitted on behalf of stephen colbert. >> by contrast, b and c conclude that cost associated with those -- ab and c, reach the same conclusions on the following issues. >> a couple of things. >> earlier -- set forth in agenda document 11-38 question one. >> the certain something -- do not have to be required. and but if you do, then -- (laughter) >> stephen: if only, if only there had been more arcane bureaucratic jargon we might have been carried on c-span 3. of course, i was there to get my rights by any means necessary. and i let those commissioners have it with both barrels. >>

approved colbert's superpac which will let him raise money and buy tv time for political ads. smart move, fcc, if there's one thing you don't want it's a feud with stephen colbert. although i have to say when that opportunity presented itself to anderson he didn't shy away as you'll see in this the ridiculist classic. >> all right, time for the the ridiculist. i got to admit i struggle tonight whether or not to add this person to the list. but i decided in the end that enough is enough. so tonight we're adding a man by the name of steven colbert to the list. at first i must admit i'd forgotten who steven -- what? colbert? really? you're sure. the t is silent. stephen colbert, apparently. my team of p.r. professionals tell me i have been on mr. colbert's show but i have no memory of that. i put sean hannity on the the ridiculist a clip of me on air which was edited to change what i said. mr. colbert took issue and accused me of copying him. he went so far as to create something called the absurd you chart just to put me on it. look. >> you, sir, are nothing but a thief! because your segme

've got to go. thank you, laura flanders and mike papantonio. thank you. comedy central's stephen colbert starts his own superpac. he celebrated with a campaign finance knock knock joke. that's next. >>> as you may or may not know, the late, great james brown, godfather of soul is a very special man to me. he was like a father to me. you see a picture of he and i 35 years ago in my early 20s. and even though he had been gone for almost five years, the world needs to know that game james brown is still the man. last night on bet's "monique show" bootsy collins and i paid tribute when we debuted a new song, "james brown is still the man." i'm singing, i don't sing. and bootsy is doing the funk. here's a taste from last night. every time we use our art and our music to lift those of us that are down at the bottom, to look towards the top and dream for a better day, i know that's james brown. he's still the man. every time i see a kid -- black, white, asian, latino -- come from nothing and believe they can go somewhere and beat the odds, i know that's james brown. he's still the man. see, i c

of his agenda. >>> steven colbert started a superpac. it's part of a spoof on campaign finance laws but the hearing is real. he can use his show to produce ads. >> i'm reminded as we stand here of the pilgrims who on this very spot, but in massachusetts, filed their papers to form clement pack, to be free of the tyranny of king george who refused to allow a single corporate on u.s. presidential elections. >> i don't remember that from my history book. today in washington, republicans are taking things personally. hitting back at the president who laid into them for planning to go home next week on break instead of working on a budget deal. >> so maybe if he would take a valume and come down and talk, it might be helpful. >> it's the kind of language you expect from a leader of a third world country, not the president of the united states. >> frankly, he should be embarrassed. unfortunately, the threshold of embarrassment here in washington is different than the rest of the world. >> i understand we may be staying here next week. i'm not sure it's to do with anything involving the gr

of glenn beck's sign off. stephen colbert is wanting to organize eight super-pac. he was at the sec this week. he learned an important lesson in washington. even a gifted comedian cannot make the federal election committee funny. the ftc decided the comedy central start could go ahead with this plan to find eight super-pac. the panel also concluded that his employer, a viacom, would have to publicly disclose any help against to colbert. is the american dream dead? here is barry smith. "if the american dream is not dead, but we are watching of the spent -- we're watching on defense." next is a republican from san diego. caller: i would not say the american dream is dead for everybody. as far as illegal aliens, they can come over here, have kids, get free education and free health care. it is probably not dead for them. it's probably over for white men over 50. that would be me, a few million others. host: are you still working? caller: no, i lost my job last november. host: what field were you? caller: transportation. it was kind of a dead-end job to begin with. host: so what are you
